For those of us who can't wait for the upcoming season of sunshine, warm temps, and beach days, the summer solstice is a surefire sign that we're almost there. That's right: The longest day of the year is well on its way. On Thursday, June 21, you'll have more time to team up with those glorious rays to capture the best selfie angles, and you'll need summer solstice 2018 captions to pair with your pics.
So, how do we manage to be #blessed with this one day of the year that has more hours of sunlight than the rest? Well, while the Northern Hemisphere is about welcome summer, the Southern Hemisphere will be entering winter. This change has to do with the way Earth is positioned on its axis and rotates around the sun.
The June solstice can occur between June 20 and June 22, according to Time and Date. Once it passes, you will begin to notice that the days start getting shorter, because as quickly as summer enters our lives, the quicker it leaves and leads us into autumn. Let's not think about the end just yet, though. For now, let's just bask in the idea that for an entire day, you have the opportunity to light up your feed (no pun intended). You should definitely make your way outside for your summer solstice pics and play around with any of these 25 captions.
